In zones 3-12, purple bunching onions are a staple in your Organic garden and prefer full sun. It's best to start these in starter pots 8-12 weeks before your last frost in the spring. Use deeply watered soil and place the seeds 1/4" deep lightly covered with vermiculite or sand as they need light to germinate. Keep warm (use a germination mat if necessary) and water from below. For the best flavor and to encourage further growth, cut off tops of the onions when they reach an initial height of 3 inches. This will encourage root growth. Transplant the seedlings to the garden when they are 3-4 inches tall and 3 inches apart. Prior to transplanting, harden off the seedlings for 2 weeks.

You can direct sow these in late spring once your temperatures stay in the 50-60's. Work your garden soil 6 inches deep and sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 3 inches apart. In the garden we lightly dust with screened peat to keep the birds from eating them.
